Virginia Woolf, lite, with a surprise

Adopt a Sailor (2008) - IMDb:

Kinda sentimental and unreal, but with a brutal takedown of Upper West Side NYC types. The sailor, Ethan Peck, though too angelic to be real, is charming, with the dignity of a humble man. And for once his character's Americana is not an object of ridicule but a source of judgment. Peter Coyote, himself an arch lefty in real life, plays out the shadow of all his highmindedness. The surprise is Frasier's wife Lilith --actress Bebe Neuwirth--who shows a great range and warmth, even as she enacts yet another mankiller spouse.
